a challenge to california's proposition 8, which could either be a very narrow decision about california only or the justices could take up the basic question about whether states can deny same sex couples the ability to get married. these cases won't be argued until probably march, but i think it's very surprising. this is a huge action by the supreme court today wading fully into the issue of same-sex marriage. so it's going to mean that this will be an absolute blockbuster term. >> pete, can you talk a little bit about what it means to take two cases in this way at the same time? we know from the aca decision that justice roberts cares deeply about his legacy and the legacy of the court. how do we read that into this discussion? is he going to want to be part of a decision stripping rights away from people, and then he looks into the future and he's in a case like people look back and say he was the chief justice when they took rights away from millions of americans. >> reporter: we can read nothing into any specific justice's thinking about the fact they took up the defense of marriage ac

much less about the banks. equity financing is vastly better. you know, in california we had the crisis in the '80s. sorry. in 2000. the crisis. there was no debt. and, you know, people recovered. california's very anti-fragile because they benefit of every era, every problem. they make lemonade of every lemon. so that's the first thing is less debt in the system. it's a combination. to have an economy that's anti-fragile. you need also to have less deficit on the part of government and transfer it to the states. more decentralized decision making. why? because if you do you have decentralized errors. not one error dragging you down and last decade two errors in the down. iraq war. you know? it was a horror from human side. but it cost between 40 and 120 times the original estimates. you don't want mistake that is are very large. a fragile system is one in which mistakes are costly and the benefits are small and anti-fragile system is one in which mistakes are small and bring long-term benefits. we want to be in that environment and environment that ben filths of mistakes. >> i hear wha

rights case comes from california which gave gays the right to marry and then with proposition 8 took it away. taking away an existing right because of animus was prohibited by the court in a '96 decision authored by justice kennedy. but where the doma case asks can the federal government discriminate against married couple, the prop 8 case asks can states bar gays from marrying. kennedy has the opportunity to liberate california or create a gay roe v. wade. s acceptance is only growing. kennedy can only give the gay rights movement a decisive final

created an incentive for states to register people, california last year submitted eight names, eight in the whole state that system doesn't seem to be working. with newtown, adam lanza might have had mental problems and stole guns from his mom. how would that work? >> we need to as a first step take serious tlais we have on the books. we actually purport to keep track of everyone who has been adjudicated mentally ill, drug addicted, alcoholic and they are not supposed to be able to acquire firearms. before we set new rules how about enforcing those rules. everyone is making fun of wayne lapierre for talking about a registry of the mentally ill. in fact that's already federal law. we're supposed to have a registry of people who have been deemed dangerously mentally ill. the fact we can't get the records we already have into that registry is a sad comment on our ability to buckle down and actually take action as opposed to having speeches on both sides. >> yeah. wayne lapierre wants to put guns in every school. of course we know they had an armed guard at columbine on that want day who
